Central Bhutan Walking Adventure
Wildland Adventures

Central Bhutan Walking Adventure

Bhutan is the last Mahayana Buddhist Kingdom and the teachings of this school of Buddhism are intrinsic to the daily life of its people.  Here the spinning of prayer wheels, the murmur of mantras and the glow of butter lamps in the houses are still important features of the everyday life. The architecture in Bhutan is unique and charming with several old Dzongs (temples) built without a single nail.  Approach the country actively by biking in villages, walking up to pilgrimage sites in the hills and along trails in search of bird life in the Gangtey Valley. View the stunning Himalayan scenery from high passes decorated with prayer flags.  Explore the less-touristic Haa Valley where you have the option to stay in a family farm-house. This adventure can be modified to include mountain-biking.
